Hi,
I have a client who is getting married in a month and she has a problem with her skin. It looks like a hive rash, small red spots all over body but is not really itchy. She has had all sorts of treatment to get rid but its been no use, she has even had allergy tests but still no good. I'm a bit stumped TBH!! Any geeks out there got any idea?

Many thanks

It sounds like urticaria to me, has she seen a doctor? it could be a reaction to something. Anti histimines could help if it is xxx

Am only passing on info that I have received from Andy..(Axiom) about this sort of thing. I stress I am not a skin geek.
Anti-histamines. Sudocrem.
They worked for me in a similar situation when I begged for his help (an absolute darling in my time of need I must say:hug:) but my problem was to do with waxing so maybe hers is a little different. There is something in Sudocrem (I'm unsure what it is - maybe zinc?) but it did help me get rid of the problem x

Has she been referred to a dermatologist? It sounds like she needs to see one.

In my own little world
Has she started using a different wash powder/softener,different soaps etc?

If it were foods,or something requiring anti- histamine then the spots would be very itchy.

Tbh the Dr should refer her to dermatolagist,it sounds like it could be a nervous reaction to the wedding,if thats the case then maybe she could try reflexology or relaxation techniques.

I went through a terrible time a few years ago with a very blotchy,itchy neck.It was very red and I took a course of Piriton for several weeks before it cleared up.I still dont know to this day what caused it,I did nothing different,ate nothing different but it was quite awful.I think it may have been down to sress,stress can play havoc on our bodies.

Your client could try Darphin's Intral Balm which contain Camomile and is excellent for calming skin irritations, reducing redness and inflamation.Hth:hug:

I have had urticaria and it itches like mad so I don't think it is this, but could be wrong. Could it be acne rosacea?

Yes.. I've got to admit the advice I've got was from itching like you wouldn't believe.

When I had a bad reaction to some eye cream (the skin looked like it has been burnt) the Doc prescribed Aveno Body Lotion (I know but it works on the eye lids too). It has coloidial oatmeal in it. I also had a Dermalogica mask with coloidial oatmeal and that helped as well.
